A few days ago I mentioned to Lawyer Mama that Boobaby is learning the "extra" Rudolph words — you know, those extra phrases you say after each line of the song? Her response led me to believe that my extra words aren’t quite the extra words everyone else uses. We started out that way but… well, things evolved.
So, for a little Christmas fun, here’s how we sing it in the Doo household. (Well, me and Boobaby, anyway. We don’t often get other takers.)
Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer (reindeer)
Had a very shiny nose (like a light bulb)
And if you ever saw him (through your glasses)
You would even say it glows (like atomic waste)
All of the other reindeer (bullies)
Used to laugh and call him names (like freaky nose)
They never let poor Rudolph (Rudolph)
Join in any reindeer games (like hoof ball)
Then one foggy Christmas Eve (D’Oh!)
Santa came to say (It’s global warming!)
"Rudolph, with your nose so bright, (freak!)
Won’t you guide my sleigh tonight? (or else…)"
Then all the reindeer loved him (hypocrites),
As they shouted out with glee (Yippee!)
"Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, (you’re still a freak, but)
You’ll go down in history! (like Columbus!)"
To those of you who celebrate today, Merry Christmas!
